Football packages with Manchester City
Manchester City is a traditional club which has always been in the shadow of its big brother, Manchester United. The successes have been so-so throughout the years, but today Manchester City is the king of English football.
Tickets for home games can be bought on the internet or over the phone. Since Manchester City now has become a very popular team to watch, be prepared for the fact that tickets tend to be sold out way in advance. However, if you turn to a travel agent which specializes on football trips, you can get both single tickets and packaged football trips that include ticket, hotel and flights, or just ticket and hotel.
Manchester City was formed as Ardwich AFC in 1887, and became Manchester City in 1894. Up until the 2008/09 season, it was a bit of a struggle to be a fan of Manchester City, or The Citizens as the club is often called. At the end of the 90’s, the club was even down in the English third division. In August of 2008 the investment company Abu Dhabi United Group stepped in with a large sum of money, however, which gave the club brand new financial muscles. In the 2010/11 season, Manchester City qualified to play in Champions League and won the FA Cup. The 2011/12 season resulted in its first League title in 44 years.
